The best mid/large-size company to work for, period.

Software Engineer (Current Employee) Menlo Park, CA

ProsFLEXIBILITY, FLEXIBILITY, FLEXIBILITY
Work on what you want
Work when you want
Work where you want

Very flexible schedule. I generally come in to the office at 1pm. Sometimes I leave at 10pm, sometimes I leave at 2am, sometimes [Fridays] I leave at 7pm. Sometimes I work from home. Sometimes I work from Hawaii.
Excellent opportunity. I was promoted within 7 months of starting.
Super flexible management. I told my manager I wanted to work on a new [my own] project; he immediately said go for it. I've been working on it full time for 1.5 months. I told my manager I wanted to move to Seattle. He said okay, look for a team up there.
Awesome food. Awesome amenities.
Smart people. Learn from the best.

ConsNot as much opportunity for [company] growth as what you'd get at a startup.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
